WHAT Is This World Coming To?

I can't believe I just wrote that. That is surely proof that I am old. I couldn't help it though.

I don't have cable or an antennae, so I don't watch TV or the news. I don't have a subscription to the newspaper here in Sumter because, well, I can't see paying to read about how Bubba caught 6 catfish and served 'em up at the church fish fry on Saturday night. Once in a while I venture out on the web and read the news, but For the most part, I am content keeping up only with the BIG stuff and letting my head stick in the sand for the rest.

Tonight though, I decided to venture on over to Fox News. Can I just say that I was absolutely appalled.

While I can respect some of Ann Coulter's ideas, I do think she has crossed the line one too many times. I get saying what's on your mind. I get standing up for what you believe in. I don't get why you have to call someone a name or why you have to be so vile towards those with whom you disagree.

Then there was the story about the man who is missing after allegedly dismembering his wife. I don't think I need to say anything else there.

Then, a story told of how construction workers found the body of a baby girl with the umbilical cord still attached crammed into a 2 gallon pickle jar and buried. If you don't want to raise the child, then please, put the child up for adoption. No one will think horribly of you. PLEASE, don't kill an innocent child because you are scared, ashamed or whatever.

And then, the clencher. A man apparently videotaped his ex-girlfriend performing lewd acts. Then, he made DVD of the video and left them on car windows. Why? Because she broke up with him. Newsflash Dude! This ain't gonna win her back.

It's a wonder that God hasn't just said, "poof" to this old world and made this all just go away. It's a good thing I am not God. I would have "poofed" all this away a long time ago. We are not deserving of even air to breathe, let alone food to eat and nice clothes and beautiful scenery. Yet, instead of poofing us away, He proves His mercy is everlasting. Thank God.

I have those same thoughts! We don't have cable or antennae either, but I don't feel that we are missing anything. There are so many hurting people in the world. It's overwhelming!
